Board Meeting Minutes


The Board of Library Trustees is composed of 12 volunteers who serve as the policy and planning body for the Jacksonville Public Library system. Trustees are appointed by the Mayor of Jacksonville and confirmed by the City Council. Each trustee serves a four year term and may serve a total of two consecutive terms. The board also includes at least two non-voting members who serve in an ex officio capacity.

Regular board meetings are held in the Main Library and at the branches on a rotating basis on the second Thursday of each month. Special board meetings and committee meetings are held as needed. The public is welcome to attend.

For more information please contact the director’s office at 630-1994 or contact the Board of Trustees Chair.
